There is still plenty of time for sponsors to sign up to the Financial Industry Community Aid Program (FICAP)’s industry wide event Who wants to be a RockStar?

In what FICAP says is its best sponsorship start to the year, Challenger has taken the top Platinum sponsorship level for the first time, three of last year’s Platinum sponsors have returned and 18 financial services firms have come on board as Gold Sponsors.

Challenger cited industry wide participation as the reason behind it upgrading its support this year.

“Giving back to the community is a core principle for Challenger and clearly also very important for the wider financial services industry as a whole. It is great to be involved in an event that brings the industry together and sponsor a truly worthy cause,” said Challenger general manager for platforms and national key accounts Rommel Hacopian.

Joining Challenger at the Platinum level are long-time supporters of FICAP, ANZ, BT Financial Group and Perpetual.

At the Gold level, Aberdeen Asset Management, AMP Capital, BlackRock, BNY Mellon, BT Investment Management, Colonial First State, Count Financial, Fidelity, Franklin Templeton, Ironbark Asset Management, Macquarie, Magellan, MLC, PIMCO, Profusion, UBS, Vanguard and Zurich have all joined in the chorus of support.
